General Update

Yes! Finally got my new laptop up and running AND managed to recover the data from the old junkbox. Thanks to those of you who responded to the last post -- I'm sorry I couldn't get back to you right away, but I did need a working computer ;-) I should even be able to your posts now.

In other news: my recent WotF story fell flat on its face and is now up for revisions. I hope things go better for the Q1 story I sent in, which I (dare I say it?) actually like very much. Pre-computer-swap I also edited the story for
Port Iris. The editing team had a bunch of professional sugestions, so this is looking more and more like an interesting magazine. (However, at the moment it's not easy to see in an Explorer browser... but I think they're working on that.)

Writing projects for the coming months: Finish a short story I started drafting in October, edit another short story (started in 2007), and write the last half of the fantasy novel I started during Nanowrimo. That may yet turn out to be a trilogy... in which case "coming months" might be "coming years". Ah, the exciting life of a writer.

Yay computers that work!

Why would you want to see a website in an Explorer window? (snide grin)

Why Explorer? Old habits die hard, and I know the interface, and it's easier not to change :-)

The new computer's got Windows 7 (aka experimental OS), but it seems to be working well so far. Not much of a change over Vista, except that it runs faster at the moment. Of course this new computer has yet to be bogged down by tons of security fixes and service packs ;-)

Jakob's old laptop is dead. Long live Jakob's new laptop! :)

I'd send the old one off in a burning longboat if it wasn't for the CO2 it'd inflict on the atmosphere :-)
